Success. Or is it?

“Success is having money, power and fame,”
The brain exclaimed!
The heart, however, proclaimed,
“It is an altogether different ballgame.”

.

The brain asked in a confused and angry manner,
“What else is success apart from being rich and
having glamour?”
The heart replied with a stammer,
“Success is flourishing in doing what you like – be it
a nurse or a rapper.”

.

The heart continued, “Doing what leaves you
depressed
Causes you to obsess
Over money, and leaves you suppressed
Is definitely not success.”

.

The brain understood its folly,
Learning that success is more about being jolly,
Having a sound and healthy body.

Finding the utmost joy in happy occasions like
Christmas and Diwali!
But not about owning a Ferrari or a Bugatti!
